The Dress That Gwyneth Wore

I've had a love/hate relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow ever since she dated my #1, Brad Pitt, back in the 90s. Not only was she gorgeous and dating Brad Pitt, but she was tall, thin, and incredibly smart, too, even fluent in Spanish. Then she did a little film called Shakespeare in Love, one of my favorite films of all time. How could I hate her after that? Plus, she'd already broken up with Brad Pitt by then. Now, it seems, we have similar taste in dresses!


Dress: French Connection Lula Colorblock Stretch Sheath Dress

The dress is available in a black/white/gray color scheme on Amazon Fashion and Saks Off 5th. The dress is tight fitting and is not lined, so definitely plan to wear some Spanx. I'm wearing the Shape My Day Girl Shorts.

Sandals: Sophia Webster Finn Glitter Patent Leather Peep-Toe Pumps

Most of the time, I can't afford anything that Gwyneth wears or touts on her Goop website, so of course I was stunned to see her in French Connection. I love the brand, but it tends to be really affordable. That's one word that doesn't really bring to mind images of the Oscar winner.




P.S. I actually met Gwyneth Paltrow in the early 2000s, when she was promoting Shallow Hal. She was very nice in person, and smiled a lot. I remember being very starstruck!

Hello!
I love love love that dress since I saw it! Recently I ordered it in a different color (see the link below), But since it is the first time I am using tight dresses, I am not sure about the size :/
I would like to ask you about your experience. Did you get for this dress the regular size you use?
In my case I am 38 EUR, or 10 UK. But I am not sure if I should go one size up, or maybe work a bit until it fits :)

Thanks!
